Is the Statue of Liberty a male or female?
the face is that of a roman male. no breast. wearing the robes of an intellect. holding the torch of illumination, the book of truthful knowledge, and sporting a halo of insight or understanding. that is not up for debate. that is what the statues creators intended it to mean. "lady liberty" is what people who don't know the truth or want to mis-lead those who won't research for themselves have been calling it.

Yes, it is. It is endangered because the cup that holds peoplebroke down and now NONE can go onto the cup. (kinda looks like awine glass) The UNited States paid billions to fix it. it's stillnot fully fixed. Many people drive around the Statue of Libertywhich means it could cause some damage to the …statue. The oldmonument can break down too. The stairs are many years old. One ofthem could break away. Hopefully the cup will break anymore. Itbroke to old age probably. From, JackerHacker . +++ I take it that it has an internal steel framework. Presumably thisis corroding badly. After all, it is surrounded by moist,salt-laden sea air. Might the copper cladding be exacerbating thecorrosion by electrolysis? I will never see it but I do hope it canbe repaired successfully. It will be tragedy for everyone, not justthe USA, if your trade-mark statue were to collapse! (MORE)

It still is: the green colour isthat of its oxide, 'verdigris', which slows further corrosion. The"chemicals" in the rain are simply the rainwater and oxygen fromthe air, although if the atmosphere there is heavily polluted bysulphur this will add weak sulphuric acid to the mix to turn thecopper to copper sulphate.

In a nutshell, the ancient male Greek statues represent the idealheroic male athlete. The primary reason for the lack of female Greek nudes would be theidea of it being immodest in the male-driven ancient Greek world(particularly in Athens). There was really no reason to show offthe female nude bod…y like that (unless it was pornography or inreference to a goddess). Check out the Venus de Milo (Louvre Museum) for an exampleof a half-naked Greek female statue. The statue showsAphrodite/Venus with her garments draped around her hips. It'squite sexual due to the idea of what's below the garments if shewere to just drop them a little further, and this idea flows withthe idea that she's the goddess of love. This depiction would havebeen appropriate because of her role in Greek religion. (MORE)
